Broccoli Tater Tots

Broccoli and bread crumb tater-tots in a fast food basket with ketchup

Brock n’ roll with this healthy tater-tot recipe. Crisp and delicious flavor will leave your kids happy and healthy after chowing down on this delightful snack!


2 cups (12oz) uncooked or frozen broccoli

1 large egg

1/4 cup diced onion

1/3 cup cheddar cheese

1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs

1/3 cup Italian breadcrumbs

2 tbsp parsley (or cilantro and rosemary)

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Grab a baking sheet and cover with parchment paper or grease with oil to avoid sticking.

Bring water to a boil in a medium sauce pot and blanch the broccoli for 1 minute. After, run cold tap water over the broccoli to halt the cooking process. Then drain out all excess water.

Finely chop the broccoli and place into a large mixing bowl. Mix in egg, onions, cheese, breadcrumbs, and seasoning. Use an ice-cream scoop or your hands to form your mix into a compact ball. Then mold into a tater-top shape. Place your formed tots onto the baking sheet.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Be sure to turn them over around the 10 minute mark. Remove from oven and cool for a few minutes before serving.

Pick and serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Ketchup, ranch, fry-sauce or sriracha should do the trick. Enjoy!
